Ugly Christmas Sweaters

bunnybloghop I am participating in the Friday Blog Hop; so fun to hop along and see new blogs. Click on the button to hop along with us!

Ugly Christmas Sweater events have become quite trendy in recent times. There are ugly Christmas sweater contests at places of employment, ugly Christmas sweater parties. There is even a web site dedicated solely to Ugly Sweaters: http://www.myuglychristmassweater.com.  My daughter wanted to participate in Ugly Sweater Day at her school. We didn’t happen to have any so we made a trip to Goodwill figuring we could find all kinds for cheap. Apparently this fad caused crowds of sweater seekers because there were exactly none!

Lily found a green sweater and I found a fabric stuffed Santa head with a thick white beard. Lily broke out the glue gun and safety pins while Emmett our rescue cat jumped up on the counter to supervise.049 050 Emmett suggested that Lily reinforce the glue with an old fashioned safety pin.Lily thought it was pretty ugly; I think it’s kind of cute! Especially after looking at the examples below. I believe that is a miniature goat on the the woman’s lap-haha.  Do you have an ugly Christmas sweater? Any competitions where you live?048 *temp* UglyChristmasSweater3 UglyChristmasSweater4
